Kalologie 360 Spa's expert beauty gurus offer a first-class selection of pampering services, earning the franchise a spot on Elle magazine's 2008 list of Top 10 Beauty Boutiques. The staff exfoliates faces with more than 10 varieties of facials and peels, using the boutique's own line of products custom formulated from medical-grade ingredients free of parabens and sulfates. Therapists also treat clients with massage modalities such as Swedish, shiatsu, and deep-tissue, as well as waxing treatments that use specially formulated hard and soft wax for all areas of the body.
At A Plus Massage Therapy, certified massage therapist Audrey Poliskey tackles stress and muscular aches with 10 years of therapeutic experience.

Best Face and Body aims to be a respite from the hectic pace of modern living. Inside the warmly lit spa, professionals pamper clients with soothing massage services, healing aesthetic treatments, and their own line of proprietary skincare products. Founder Bonnie Best developed the B.Best line to reinforce the impact of her spa treatments with a skincare regimen clients could follow at home. As she carefully calibrated each formula, she eschewed ingredients such as mineral oil, alcohol, or perfume, which she knew from experience can dehydrate skin and clog pores. Instead, her products incorporate state-of-the-art substances recommended by skincare manufacturers and chemists to help hydrate, protect, and nourish skin.
Matteo Baker didn't put “220” in the name of his fitness center just to help people remember its street address. He did it to remind them of his goal for the center's services: to be “second to none.” With body-bolstering services that range from personal training to chiropractic care to nutritional counseling, 220 Fitness and Wellness blends conventional gym practices with holistic wellness therapy to forge a multifaceted approach to health. While in one of three studios or out on the beach, guests can get hearts pumping in one of the center's group classes, including boot camp, cycling, and yoga, each of which take place frequently enough to let latecomers find a fun alternate class and early comers join in the previous class's naptime. When workouts are finished, the modern facility's licensed and certified health practitioners work to help guests recover from or prevent injuries with physical therapy, chiropractic care, and massage therapy.
Walking from one treatment room to another inside Tikkun Holistic Spa feels like what walking through a rainbow might be like. The deep blue-greens of the jade room give way to the pink bricks of the Himalayan salt room, and arctic-imitating landscape in the ice room shines a pale blue. Besides exuding a calming atmosphere, Tikkun Holistic Spa has one main goal: to help heal the entire world, one stressed-out person at a time. To that end, reiki master and owner Niki Han Schwarz developed her signature Korean body treatments for clients. Among those treatments is the body scrub and hot oil massage, in which scrubbing mitts exfoliate and hydrate the entire body. The spa also offers a variety of other relaxing treatments that include massage, body wraps, and facials.
The heating power of the enzyme bath was first used by Japanese Olympians until it was banned for bestowing performance-enhancing equanimity. A dry bath fueled by wood shavings, rice bran, and fruit and vegetable extracts, the combination of heat and vapor cleanses the skin and stimulates the circulatory system while relaxing muscles and facilitating detoxification. You will wear a bathing suit and have your own private wooden tub during the experience.
